One-of-a-kind text takes a comprehensive look at all aspects of feline behaviour - from the history that shaped the original behaviour to its changing roles for humans. Written by a veterinarian for veterinarians, this book gives readers a wealth of information on recent findings on cat behaviour, today's treatment options, plus ways veterinarians can deal with feline behaviour problems ...pertinent information rarely found in a single source. Dozens of case studies document treatment strategies for specific behaviour problems.
